Just in time for the grilling season, Shannon Hayes introduces her newest cookbook “The Farmer and the Grill: A guide to grilling, barbecuing and spit-roasting grassfed meat...and for saving the planet, one bite at a time.”

Like her inaugural cookbook “The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook,” it is chock-full of user-friendly recipes and stories that bring home cooks closer to the world of pasture-based farming and earth-friendly cooking. Whether you are a pro at the coals, or a complete novice, The Farmer and the Grill will help you to work with pasture-raised meats with ease and confidence.
